2. Bitcoin TA analysis

Before we start here is an overview of the Fear & Greed index.

Daily Time Frame

The $25.000 resistance zone hit the price of Bitcoin really hard, as Bitcoin has been consolidating ever since it touched that area.

From the Daily chart, we can see that the price has been “ranging” in the bullish channel, and is now sitting at the bottom trendline. Three other bullish confluences are the EMA200 indicator, support zone at $21.600 and Stochastic RSI is showing that the price is in the oversold area.

Despite the anticipation of bullish days ahead, it's important to remain vigilant and keep a watchful eye as things may not always turn out as expected.

In the event that the consolidation persists and the price breaches the trendline and support zone, there is a possibility that Bitcoin's trading value could drop to $19,000 within the upcoming weeks. Let's hope this scenario doesn't come to fruition 🤞.

4h Time Frame

The PA (price action) of Bitcoin over the past three days is displayed in the grey box, depicting movement within a narrow range of $500. This is atypical behaviour for the cryptocurrency market, which leaves one to wonder 🤔.

There are some bearish signs on the 4h time frame:

    • Price moved below the EMA200 indicator

    • A downward trendline formed

    • Stochastic RSI is in the overbought area on the 4h time frame

      The daily time frame is showing us bullish signs, but the 4h time frame is showing us bearish signs. What’s the correct answer then?

      There are no correct answers. Wait for your confirmation and only then react!

      3. Silvergate

      Silvergate, a crypto-friendly bank, is currently in a bit of a pickle, and not the kind you can turn into a crypto-picklecoin. Their delay in filing their annual report has led to a 31% plunge in their stock price. And it's not just investors who are worried, the bank's accounting department is probably sweating harder than a crypto miner in a heatwave.

      The bank seems to be facing a bit of a rough patch lately. They are facing a liquidity crunch due to investors withdrawing funds, but hey, maybe they can stay afloat by offering free toasters to new account holders. It's a good thing they are crypto-friendly, as we wonder if they're ready to start accepting Dogecoin for their morning coffee

      Silvergate's handling of crypto-related deposits has also been called into question. We're not saying they don't know what they're doing, but let's just say the high risk and volatility of the crypto market have them feeling like they're walking on eggshells. Maybe they could benefit from a quick crash course in Crypto 101. 

      To add to their woes, Coinbase has severed ties with Silvergate Bank, and Bybit has suspended USD bank transfers through them. It's a setback, but let's hope they'll bounce back in no time. Who knows, maybe they'll start handing out business cards on street corners to lure in new clients – whatever works, right?

      In summary, Silvergate Bank seems to be going through a rough patch. With the delay in filing their annual report, concerns about their financial health and ability to handle crypto-related deposits, while loosing clients at the same time, they could use a little bit of luck. Maybe they can seek the guidance of a Bitcoin-accepting fortune teller to turn things around?

      To restore confidence in their operations and ensure their long-term viability, they may have to get creative.
